The angst and pain of being Singaporeans that assholes cannot understand




Below is a post by a commenter called Tham in TRE.  If you can’t feel the pain and the frustration of this Tham, and the many filial children that shared the hapless feelings of Tham’s son knowing the financial problems they caused to their parents, you are inhuman. Read on to share the plight of being average parents in this extremely expensive city and trying to make ends meet. I just have to share this post to let the world know what the average Singaporeans are going through. This is the norm.

Tham: Readers out here, do share my grief; do share my agony; do share my anger; do share my frustration, when :

My son was graduated in NUS in year 2012 and the graduation ceremony was held in middle of July 2012 whereby more than 700 fresh graduates were waiting for their turns to be given the University Degree Certificate on stage…!!!!

As parents, both myself and my wife attended the grand convocation together with my daughter on that very evening.

There were thousands of parents serving as audience attended to this event held on that very day’s graduation apart from the volume closed to a hundred of convocation ceremonies held before this said date and immediately thereafter.

From the mother tongue these huge pool of audience attended to this ceremony alone, more than 70% are from PRC…!!!!

As a matter of courtesy and carried with joy witnessing the graduation of our children is something great…!!! We did not hesitate chatting freely with all these PRC parents who were there as audience giving their cheers and support to their children…!!!!
What really frustrate, angered and antagonized us is that parents of these PRCs were saying :

1) Ooooh, this Singapore PAP Government is very kind and generous in giving out FREE EDUCATION, FREE TUITION FEE, FREE LODGING & FOOD AND EVEN MONTHLY POCKET MONEY FOR THEIR CHILDREN TO STUDY HERE WHICH THEY CAN HARDLY FIND IN THIS WORLD….!!!!

2) Even a BOND is required to be signed as a formality so that after their children are graduated and comes out to work, they will have this revenue source to repay back whatever Educational Loans so far extended to them BUT AT ANY TIME THEY CAN FLED BACK TO CHINA WHICH IS VAST ENOUGH FOR THEM TO TEMPORARILY HIDE THEMSELVES UP AND THEREAFTER GO TO OTHER COUNTRIES TO SEEK FOR A HIGH SALARIED JOB WITH GREAT PROSPECTS…!!!!

From here we need to ask ONE VERY BASIC SIMPLE QUESTION :
Why aren’t our own True Native Born Singaporeans being privileged with all these Benefits when they are eligible to enroll for a seat & their parents have been all along over the past contributed towards the building of this Nation…???

My son, a True Native Born Singaporean; served the two & a half years of Full Time National Service in the Army; his parents are both also True Native Born Singaporeans who have contributed for the past decades in serving this Nation and myself too served the Part-Time National Service for 12 years with 5 years in the Army and 7 years in the Police Force…!!!!

WHY ARE WE NOT PRIVILEGED WITH THIS BENEFITS FOR OUR OWN CHILDREN TO OBTAIN & RECEIVED THEIR TERTIARY EDUCATION FOR FREE WHEN OUR CHILDREN ARE ELIGIBLE TO ENROLL THEMSELVES FOR A SEAT IN THE UNIVERSITIES…????

As a filial piety son, he was reluctant to take out borrowings from my CPF money to pay for his University school fees and tuition fees in view of my health & age, among others…!!!!
My son worked full time during the day as a simple technician and with his lean income, he saved hard to ensure he can afford to pay for his semester fee and tuition fee when falls due during his course of study at NUS…!!!!

Far 5 years back when my daughter studied at NUS, she borrowed from my CPF to pay for her semester fees and tuition fees…!!!!

AND THERE WAS COMPULSORY NEED FOR HER TO SEEK FOR A GUARANTOR WHO MUST BE A WORKING SINGAPOREAN BEFORE SHE IS APPROVED TO TAKE UP THE BORROWINGS FROM MY CPF ACCOUNT…!!!!

We (our whole family) together with our relatives, friends and colleagues whom are acquainted with us do share this : UNFAIRNESS AND ABUSIVE POLICIES OF THE PAP GOVERNMENT OVER ON HOW THEY HAVE ILL TREATED ALL OUR TRUE NATIVE BORN SINGAPOREANS….!!!!

Least but not Last or Last but not the Least, rest PAP can be assured that from all those within our known circle who knew about our predicament will NEVER VOTE FOR THIS PAP FROM THEREON IN EACH GENERAL ELECTION…!!! Thank you very much…

Hi RB, speed. I cannot believe that this is actually happening here in Singapore. Sad, vey sad. I can fully understand the frustration of Singaporean parents when they see PRC students so well supported by the PAP government. Still quite unbelievable!!!

Similar stories have been posted on the net. Is the govt aware. What is puzzling is they continue to extend these scholarships to foreigners at the expense and hardship of its own citizens. On top of it, the increase in fees further burden the family. I dont recall the govt fully explaining the rationale of extending these scholarships to foreigners. Additionally, how many defaulted on their bond. The abuse by foreigners is most glaring. Speechless & depressing hearing Tham's comments.

If you vote PAP, it means you support the Pro Alien Politicians and their Pro Alien Policies.

Still think LKY is on the side of Singaporeans?

Besides the PRC, other nationalities like the Taiwanese as long as they are not local Singaporeans also enjoyed the same benefits on the golden not silver platter.

Recently, on a trip to Taiwan, a Taiwanese lady was conversing with s Singapore gentleman of how her children benefited from the PAP's generosity of the same as wrote by the writer.

Now the children are in Canada. She praised sky high LKY and LHL about their governance of Singapore.

First class- Majulah Singapura.

The pain of Tham's childen, like all Singaporean children, has just started. The good jobs would go to foreigners. They would end up doing part time jobs or temporary jobs. And they have to worry about how to buy that flat, support their parents and their children should they want to get married and have families of their own.

Has it got something to do with Sinkies no enough?

Remember, since the "Stop at 2" and the subtle discrimination against the "non graduate mothers giving birth" policies initiated by the late LKY a few decades ago, this is the tragic outcome today of no enough young Sinkies for our universities lah.

So with Sinkies no enough and in order to fill the many vacancies in the universities with bright youngsters, PAP has no choice but to take in PRCs and foreigners toi fill up lah, tio bo?

And this is also helped by the fact that the Sinkie opposition is also not ready to be govt, hence majority (aka 60%) Sinkies are very scared to even accidentally vote PAP out.

And why Sinkie opposition until now still not ready to be govt is also largely due to the way the late LKY had ruled and treated opponents in the past.

So u see, the late LKY actions has great lasting effects, both positive and negative, on Sinkies' lives till now and well into the future, maybe will even led to the extinction of Sinkies in the long term due to their below replacement fertility rate.

Not stop at Two policy
Alone

Who's in the Right mind dared to have more than two child in sinkie land!!!

Cost of bringing up a single child can even bankrupted you even with the so call subsidies

After aged 40, chances of redundant lurks every min with so called restructuring and not enough skills

Whole life burdened with housing, car and what's not loans

So do not blame the sinkies for not producing enough

The PAP policy of open doors of arms and legs to these students of other nationalities especially the PRcs is following Mao way of let's a thousand flowers bloom

Their dream is that after benefitting from Sin generous package of their education and after returning to PRC, they would have a sense of obligations to do singapore good with their past associations with us

Little do they know that they mostly taken for a ride by these PRCs and other nationalities

Oh please fuck off with this maudlin emotional masturbation lah. Such a SHAMELESS public display of "oh poor me..." boohoo, boohoo boo fucking hoo.

Someone please slap this ENTITLED motherfucker a few times.

There is SO MUCH OPPORTUNITY in Singapore. Yes, people fail, people get into financial woes, but in this city state you can pick yourself up and better your situation, because of the enormous amount of resources, thanks to the collective wealth and success.

Get off your HIGH HORSE about "how the govt destroyed your life". No they didn't, you did by being such an ENTITLED ASSHOLE. In Singapore the govt will destroy your life if you are a political dissident or a criminal, but not for any other reason. Get fucking REAL, and stop pretending lah!

Singapore too expensive for you? The move the fuck out and go live in Cambodia lah, and see how much better your chances are there. Your kids won't just be sucking sex-tourist dick just for money, but also for nutrition as they hungrily swallow the cum of their perverted patrons! ”Yum yum, cum protein is DELICIOUS! Look mum and dad, don’t worry about dinner…I’ve already eaten!” :-)

Cry-baby much?

Maybe that's why LKY call you a daft Sinkie.
Sinkes are slaves who walk around with chains in their brains.
Slaves who don't know they are slaves.
Lock them all up!
Starting with Amos Yee.
We need more room for Aliens.
